OnePlus will be selling its latest flagship phone — the OnePlus 5 — in Australia next week. The Soft Launch for the OnePlus 5, as announced earlier this month, will open on Tuesday, August 29 at 10am AEST, and run until supplies last.
The standard OnePlus 5 with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage in Slate Gray or Soft Gold will come in at A$599, while the one with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage in Midnight Black or Slate Gray will cost you an additional A$100. Both variants come along a free Sandstone Protective Case, but with a UK-style (Type-G) USB charger.
While the pricing seems fair enough to look at, OnePlus notes that it’s not an indicative of future OnePlus product pricing in Australia. In fact, it’s a trial to test the product and supply chain. That’s why OnePlus will be hosting its enthusiastic Fan meet-up events in Sydney and Melbourne next week to collect feedback on the OnePlus 5 Soft Launch and overall operations.
